This easy peasy recipe for bistro artichoke chicken is basically a plate full of spring, with the tender artichoke hearts and sweet shallots all cooked up with the chicken in a lovely white wine sauce. I’m calling it Bistro Artichoke Chicken because this is what I imagine you might get at a little French bistro on a warm April day, and one day I will get to France and find out if I am right. In the meantime I’m just going to serve this up for the Southern husband, open the windows just a smidge to let in the springtime breeze, and ooh-la-la. Let’s make it!
This soup is reason number 1,284,735 that I always make extra chicken when I am making chicken for other reasons, because leftover chicken means you can make things like this creamy, dreamy parmesan polenta chicken soup in a snap. If you have ever had a bowl of warm and wonderful polenta, just imagine it in soup form with chicken and baby spinach swirled into it, and a drizzle of olive oil on top. And if you haven’t ever had a bowl of polenta…well, you have a great treat to look forward to, because polenta is Comfort Food Extraordinaire. Ready for warm and wonderful soup deliciousness? Let’s make it!
Well, Happy New Year, my friends!!! Did we all have a good time over the holiday season? Did we eat All The Cookies and All The Cheese and drink All The Wine? I sure did, and I regret not one delicious minute of it…and I also have to say that I am also good and ready to kick off 2017 with some healthiness, which is its own kind of good cheer.
And as a Happy New Year to you, my wonderful readers, I have a delicious giveaway for you, AND a recipe for good and good for you roasted tomato edamame soup. Happy New Year and let’s make it!
I had a brief and intense fling with cauliflower during my brief and intense fling with the Atkins diet…the one that says you can have all the bacon that you want, so long as you don’t even THINK about eating one single solitary carbohydrate. Atkins and I had to break up quickly due to my inability to live without pasta, but one of the best things it gave me was a love for all things cauliflower…which in turn has lead to this scrumptious roasted cauliflower soup.
